We are all infected of course to some degree with the zombie virus i.e. the need for ever greater material gratification. That said, some are clearly far more afflicted than others. Those who are totally bought in to the consumption-oriented status quo have been fully zombified, whether they realize it or not. At this juncture, those who fail to acknowledge even to the mildest degree the pointless rat race to nowhere that defines modern society, are by definition fully immersed in the bubble. They can't even contemplate any other way of life, or the end of this one. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the Idiocracy is absolutely obsessed with zombies, because they see one every time they look in the fucking mirror.
The battle to come will be to save the planet and humanity from the human race itself. Already, the ecology is teetering on the brink of collapse and there is no possible way that 7 billion people can be sustained indefinitely on the planet. Once the economic collapse occurs, the blatant lack of resources will be fully revealed as the supply chain breaks down and it becomes abundantly clear that there is not enough to go around. As it is now, much of the developing world e.g. Africa relies upon ongoing economic assistance from the developed nations merely to survive. Without that economic assistance, they have no basic economy to fall back on.
History's Largest Bubble
What most people take over for granted as the status quo, is overwhelmingly dependent upon history's greatest bubble i.e. the expansion of credit (debt) that has grown inexorably larger for several decades, across the developed world. The entire supply chain and economy is dependent upon continued massive borrowing, which itself hangs merely by the thin thread of investor confidence. As we are already seeing, small fluctuations in the cost of capital (interest rates) now bring massive dislocations to capital markets. Systemic fragility was an inevitable consequence of a four year zero interest rate environment, leading to a total inability to absorb increases in interest rates. The debt-dependent system now requires ever-increasing liquidity and credit, therefore any tightening in monetary conditions - whether from Central Banks or risk averse investors - would bring about the Minsky Moment asset collapse. Once the credit bubble collapses, the flow of capital from East to West will stop, bringing a halt to the trade of goods between developed and developing countries. Meanwhile, the relative cost of capital for infrastructure and energy exploration will skyrocket. At the same time, demand will implode as capital intensive sectors - housing, cars, consumer durables etc. would be hammered due to a lack of consumer lending and borrowing. The multi-decade borrowing spree will be over, and the massive bill will be long overdue.
p.s. Zombie Survival Guide
It goes without saying that in the event of any economic "reset", these shrink wrapped zombies will be the first to lose what little is left of their humanity, affording them the least survivability. Therefore, it will be highly advantageous to avoid these types of people as much as possible and otherwise find other human beings who are able to cope under basic situations and pull their own weight.
